UPDATE (11:19 AM)-
**It’s a big day for Pat Narduzzi in Florida as he meets with a highly rated recruit. 4-star RB A.J. Davis tells me that Narduzzi will meet with him today at his high school and then will have a in-home visit with him tonight. Davis is coming off a weekend visit to North Carolina, which reportedly made a big impression on him. Pitt just offered Fort Lauderdale (FL) back Kyshaun Bryan but obviously still have plenty of interest in Davis. As I wrote yesterday, Pitt will not turn down the chance to add talent to their roster.
UPDATE (9:05 AM)-
**A name that’s been thrown around for the Pitt OC job just accepted another job. Former Indiana OC Kevin Johns has been hired at Western Michigan. Cross his name off the list at Pitt.
